this is just between you and me..

It’s easy to feel hopeful on a beautiful day like today, but there will be dark days ahead of us too. There will be days where you feel all alone, and that’s when hope is needed most. No matter how buried it gets, or how lost you feel, you must promise me that you will hold on to hope. Keep it alive. We have to be greater than what we suffer. My wish for you is to become hope; people need that. And even if we fail, what better way is there to live?

I just need evidence that things weren’t always this way

existential crisis

Totally cliché to question my purpose. The existence of such a thing. Tell me, what is it. It’s nice to live by high ideals, flowery sayings, lofty goals. That’s great. But I need details. It’s that time of my life where I need to make things happen. Be practical you know. Not become boring, “I’m an adult practical, let me give up my dreams and do this because I have to” practical. More of a “I want to change the world, and I won’t let this life pass me by so I need to do something” kind of practical. I’ve got all of these ideas, these thoughts that I cannot fathom into constellations. I just know that if I could, if I could just get it out, put a coherent sentence together from what’s going on in this head of mine, it could change the world. But for now I’m just struggling to find all of the pieces

All of this – the sadness and perplexity of life – will accompany you in your vocation. It will exist, with no contradiction, alongside the joy and truth of the Gospel. It is what we must suffer until we are fully united with God in eternity.

feel myself spiraling down the same road… but it won’t take me this time.

“When you do something noble and beautiful and nobody noticed, do not be sad. For the sun every morning is a beautiful spectacle and yet most of the audience still sleeps.”

— John Lennon 

I can’t blame anyone for believing the wrong thing or doing the wrong thing if I’m not showing them the right thing.

People don’t believe Christ because they haven’t seen Christ in me
